Career

Many of us were there.

Your job is meaningless and unsatisfying, you feel unfulfilled and like you wasting your life.


Going every day to the job you think that there has to be more than that in the life.


You want to get out of your job and find a fulfilling career, where you can just feel happy, but you don’t have any special skills or experience.


You want to get new skills to make a career change, but without going to college. You can’t afford to have another unuseful degree and student debt.


You really want it, but you just have no idea how to do it.


There are two solutions.


You can stay on the job you hate like 80% of people in the world do.


You can go every day to the job which makes you miserable.


You can work on that job the rest of your life knowing that you don’t have any future prospects there and feeling just hopeless.


But there is also another option.


You can get 
out of your job in just 3 months and make $50k+  without going to college.

Career

 So, you are making a career choice. But before doing it, you should know  that most of the people make these career mistakes don’t realizing it. It results in this horrifying statistics:

51% of graduates are working on the jobs, which don’t require their academic degree.

80% people don’t enjoy or hate their job.

You don’t want to end up like that, don’t you?

You have to be very careful here.

Those people definitely did career choice mistakes, but you can avoid them. 

 


1. Being too “realistic”

Don’t try to be just practical and choose profession, which you see around in everyday life, because you think you can find job easier and you don’t have too many options.

World is much bigger than you think and there are a lot of opportunities which you have to explore. Don’t be limited by what you see in your area, you always can consider relocation.

How to avoid this mistake:

Be curious, explore new possibilities, learn about experience of other people. Try new hobbies even if it seems first difficult. Only doing new things you can understand if you like something or not!

Think about moving to other city or country.


2.Listening
others and don’t thinking about your interests

One of the most common mistakes which happens very often – our parents make career choice for us.

Don’t you find it ridiculous?

Of course, they want the best for us and you have to know their opinion and respect it, but in most cases they don’t know about many career possibilities. So, how can they give you objective advice if they miss a lot of information?

They say: «we know what would be better for you», but you are the person who will have to work on career you are choosing all your life.

A lot of people become chronically unhappy, choosing job which is not interesting for them.

 
How to avoid this mistake:

Think about every career and analyze if it would be interesting for you. Probably you don’t completely understand what you have to do having some of these careers. That’s why it is so important to get information about it and about experience of other people.

 3.Don’t thinking what you really want

Did you think what your ideal job has to look like? Probably you did. But it may be that you just refuse this idea because you want to be REALISTIC about your opportunities. You could give up on your personal interests thinking that you can’t earn money doing that.

Why? The most famous people in the world became successful only because they were doing what they like, they were struggling to achieve their dreams and they got it!

 
How to avoid this mistake:

Think about life which you want to have in the future, even if it seems unreal to you.
Do you want to move to other city or country? Where do you want to spend your free time? Which kind of job, house, family, environment do you want to have?


4. Not believing in yourself

Admit that you had this thought making career choice – «I don’t see any sense to try, because I am not sure that I can do it» or «Yes, this person achieved a lot, but I am not that smart».

But you didn’t even try… You just crush yourself without even trying to do something. Deciding that you are not very good for something, you just decide to stay on the same level all your life. 

How to avoid this mistake:

You can achieve everything what you want. Just start to believe.

Start to discover – take online courses, talk with people who doing it, read everything about it, make internship in company you are interested in.

Desire it, dream about it, take actions towards to it and you will get it!


5. Choosing to stay in the comfort zone

This is one of the mistakes which we make, without even realizing it. It becomes normal to choose the job which is more comfortable, even if we don’t really like it.

For getting this job, we don’t need to learn additional skills or it’s located next to home or this job is offered by some friends.

We just prefer to stay in our comfort zone and choose easier opportunities.

It is very dangerous, because we do not grow personally and professionally.

Moreover staying on this kind of jobs for some time, we risk to stay there forever and be unhappy.

 
How to avoid this mistake:

Go out of comfort zone and discover what you like for making right career choice. Try activities and hobbies, which you have never tried before – climbing, public speaking, writing, learning new languages, coding, graphic design.


6. Not thinking about career trends, income and career growth

You have to consider personal interests, but income is very important as well, so the best way – is to find the balance between them.

Checking career trends might help you to choose your career, you can find interesting and unexpected options.

Choosing your future career, it is very important to know where you can grow.

Many people are leaving their job, because they can not grow further and it becomes difficult for them to work.


How to avoid this mistake:

Think about salary which you want to have and check if working on the job of your interest you can have this money.


7. Not taking into account all career aspects 

Before dedicating all your life to one career, you have to know about it as much as possible: where you can work in the future, requirements for employment, description of job, duties.

 
How to avoid this mistake:

You have to contact to people who did it, you can do it on different forums. Also you should read everything about career in internet, watch all related videos, visit companies, try skills related to this career doing online courses.

Make your own research! You have to consider salary which you need, future opportunities for career growth and trends


8. Thinking that money is more important than personal interest

A lot of us think that money can make us happy and make career choice only based on the amount of salary in the future. Of course, money is very important to us, but it is not less important to love what you are doing.

How money can make your life happier if you don’t like or even hate what you are doing each moment during 9 hours almost every day.

How can you feel happy if you feeling destroyed after your job.

How can you feel happy if you forgot what it´s to be excited, motivated and passionate about what you are doing.

 
How to avoid this mistake:

In our world there are a lot of opportunities for earning money, just discover new hobbies and try new activities and you can find something which you really like.


Be aware of these mistakes making your career choice.

Only you can decide which life you want to have – a dream career or job, which you may not enjoy or even hate.

Think about life you want to have. Discover new careers and interesting people and believe in yourself. Avoid mistakes, which other people made.

If you are doing what you love, you can become successful, make great contribution to this word and be happy! Everything is possible if you really want it!

All successful people started from nothing but implemented their dreams. So you can do it too!

Choose three new careers which you found interesting.

Read about people who already doing it, ask them how they did it, make online courses.

Find a mentor, who can help you identify which career is the best for you and show you the way how to get it.
You are the boss of your life, don’t allow silly mistakes to destroy it!
